For anthology series American Horror Story, the announcement of the theme for each season is a drawn out process. Little hints are dropped, and Season 7 was no different.
But when the title was finally revealed to be American Horror Story: Cult, many were confused. We had been previously led to believe that there was a political element to the story — and that may or may not be the case. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season.
Creator Ryan Murphy is famous for his mysterious remarks leading up to each season. But on Watch What Happens Live in February 2017, he revealed a very big hint to host Andy Cohen.
“I don’t have a title, but the season we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through,” Murphy said. Cohen was visibly surprised by the announcement, and when he asked Murphy if a character would portray Donald Trump, the showrunner replied, “Maybe.”
